In the 1950s, Horror and Mystery Comics were the reason behind the Comics Code. These comics have been around just as long as superheroes in tights. So why do they not get more respect? These masterpieces not only tell captivating stories, but they have to scare us when it comes to turning that page. Learn from some of the best in the genre. Where are Horror and Mystery Comics headed? Will digital formats spotlight this great genre? Stop in and find out.
ALSO, I will have an exclusive TLZ print, signed, numbered and limited to 25 copies. These will be $20 a piece and once they are gone, they are gone.
See everybody at the show this weekend. It is going to be amazing!
